after the contractual mess that hurney left, that might not be a bad idea.


Ross is the next profile I'm writing. After that, Omar Khan, then Kevin Abrams and probably Doug Whaley. I'll be checking Accorsi's history for other connections too.

From what I've read on Ross so far, he has zero cap management exposure. That worries me a bit. He'd need to bring someone along with some experience there.

i wouldn't mind us going back to having one guy handle the cap and another handle personnel decisions.

Is it still a possibility to bring in a Cap guy also?

i'm just glad we hired someone with a respectable team and not the browns or something like that.

this guy comes with enough clout and respect as well as enough knowledge within the league to get a good hire.

having JR outsource this was a brilliant idea.

Give me a football guy at the top and a contract/cap guy below him.

We need talent, and need to know when to let it go just as much.

Definitely a great hire! Hope this is the beginning of something special.

Me too.

Absolutely.

That's an ongoing debate.

I would much rather put the priority on getting a quality "football guy" to be the final say in personnel and then complement him with a cap guy than find a quality "cap guy" and then complement him with a football guy. I'd assume it's fairly easy to find a cap expert... Not so much when it comes to finding a guy who can accurately evaluate talent.

FWIW our current cap dude does a good job with the shitstorm he has had to put up with the past couple of years.
